The panel is made of several borders with designs of human figures, animals, and plant forms woven with brown wool. In the middle are two arches framing animals. Surrounding the arches are pairs of human figures and candelabra-like motifs. All the human figures raise their left arms (dancing ). This panel probably decorated the area below the neck opening of a garment.
